* In an episode of ''TransformersAnimated'', an upgraded Prowl beats (clone) Starscream. Unfortunately there's a lot of collateral damage - including a torn down tree and broken bird eggs, earlier that day he made it a point to protect a similar nest on Dinobot Island. Seeing these, Prowl realizes what a total asshole he's being.

* A Subversion in ''HotWheelsBattleForce5'' during the second season finale "Unite And Strike!" [[BigBad Krytus]] asks [[BigGood Sage]] if it was worth freezing the entire Red Sentient civilization just to stop his multiversal conquest. Sage's response is that Krytus was such a threat to not only the Blue Sentients but the entire multiverse that [[GodzillaThreshold she had no choice]] but to resort to her NuclearOption. Krytus responds that she was absolutely right, not that he cares.
